Product - Establishing partnerships with local ranchers and purveyors is an important hallmark for Tender Greens. Most of our produce comes fresh picked daily from Scarborough Farms in Oxnard, an investor in Tender Greens, who provides the restaurants with fresh-picked produce daily in reusable eco-friendly containers. When we have to buy produce that Scarborough doesn’t offer, we work with a handful of small local farms that use sustainable farming practices.
Food Philosophy - Tender Greens is slow food done fast. Our restaurants serve fresh, healthy, chef-inspired, farmer's market sensible dishes at an affordable price in a relaxed environment. By working with small local farmers, ranchers, artisans, boutique wineries, breweries and coffee roasters, we are able to provide the best quality ingredients and products for our guests. We believe there should be a conscious connection between the one who eats the food and the source of that sustenance.
Experience - Our restaurants offer a relaxed, laid back atmosphere, outdoor patios and modern interior design made, whenever possible, from recycled materials and environmentally friendly products. Each location features custom artwork by local artists who create pieces that capture the feel of their respective communities. These include Hollywood’s pop art by Kii Arens, our homage to Pasadena by Chris Reccardi and Irvine’s custom art by 123 Klan.
